Mrs. Corey called our book vendor today to check on our book order of 500 books that shipped on Tuesday. We found out the books wouldn’t arrive this week as expected, but will be delayed until next week! *sadface*
However, our most requested book is coming – Ellen Hopkins’ Perfect. We have 8 copies arriving and many holds already placed! If you’d like to get a copy, be sure to ask a librarian to place a hold on it for you!
In the meantime, you can watch Ellen Hopkins speak about her widely anticipated new book!
Looking for a book at your reading level? Know about Lexiles but just not sure where to start! Mrs. Corey has created a video (embedded above) to assist you in finding books in the correct Lexile range!
Not sure what Lexile range is assigned to your grade level? Use the following link: Lexile Grade Equivalent Chart
Once you know your Lexile range, go to our online catalog and use the Filter feature to adjust the Lexile range. Then, you can use the search box to find books in a certain genre (mystery, romance, etc.) or a broad category (fiction, nonfiction, etc.).
Need more help? Just ask! We’re happy to assist you in finding books at the correct Lexile range!
